Ebola, are you worried yet?

Real Estate Broker/Owner with Lane Realty Eatonton, GA Lake Sinclair, Milledgeville, 706-485-9668 GREC# 169695

It could be that I'm a little more worried than most of you about Ebola , Why?  Because my daughter is a paramedic.  So she is sent to pick up people who call 9-1-1. She typically does not know when until after she has come in contact with a patient what their symtoms fully are  People sometimes call for an ambulance not because it's an emergency, but because they have no other way to get to the hospital. 

I am not trying to be an alarmist.  But I am concerned by things like the 2nd Dallas nurse saying she phoned the CDC and they told her she could fly on Monday and on Monday they knew she was in the hospital being tested and didn't mention it.  On Wednesday the head of the CDC said "she shouldn't have been on that flight".  Really?  Perhaps you should tell your underlings that. 

And although that sweet little dempled face of my child was standing in front of the Meansville sign, she's clearly on a path to help others.  This time next year I hope to tell you she's been accepted in Medical school somewhere.   She's always wanted to help others, even as a child. So I ask you to join me in prayer that this doesn't get worse.  And pray for ALL the healthcare workers.

Debbie- not my dreams... hers.  My only dream for her is happiness and good health.

Raymond- so you think the threat is being overstated?

Good morning Tammy. To be honest, I hadn't worried much until this last incident, and don't get how someone in the field could be so self involved. I do keep health care workers in my thoughts though. You daughter is beautiful and I hope she is soon in school and busy living her dream.

 Sheila Anderson  she is in school.  Taking a full load and working full time right now. She had a year's worth of classes to take and a medical internship she will do next summer to get done to be able to apply for med school.  She's making wonderful grades and I'm very proud of her.

I understand your worries Tammy. My husband was a Paramedic and the Chief of the Lake Villa, IL Rescue Squad. There wasn't a day I wasn't worried. Am I worried about Ebolia and those who care in the medical profession? You bet I do! I just wrote a post this morning about this very issue. This isn't just about Dallas now anymore, is it?

Good morning Tammy,

Your daughter is precious and she knows that caring and serving others is her calling. A prayer for all the health care workers out there..I don't think they have a handle on Ebola and need to ramp up immediately to make sure they can control this deadly disease.

Dorie, I too am concerned about the ebola, since my daughter is an RN in an ER.

Hi Tammy - I am worried about the First Responders also, and sending prayers to your daughter and the others who are at a much higher risk. And yes, I am worried about it. I understand this am that the TSA wants to put all of the health care workers on a do night fly list - which they should. I am traveling this weekend, and am taking necessary precautions.

Hello Tammy,

The first case should never have happend and we can take no chances with our medical professionals.  The CDC has dropped the ball and the Adminstration in Washington continues to fumble it at every turn...

I will put EMS workers on our prayer list at church. I want to make sure we are all covered. I attended a seminar "thing" Thursday in which UTMB Galveston top guy spoke.  He told us then that UTMB Galveston would be handling the situation because the only three locations who could accomade were the Military, CED, and  UTMB Galveston.
